The Name Availability Rule expressed below and how the Registrar uses the rule to approve names is not a difficult process. To be approved for a name, simply review and follow the information below:
Provide AZ ROC's Licensing Department with three (3) potential names for your entity on the Name Request & Availability Form. These names should be listed in order of preference and all three names should be names you would be comfortable using for your business.
The first available name will then be reserved for you for a period of 90-days.
The Agency strongly encourages you to receive approval of a name through our Agency before seeking approval through the Arizona Corporation Commission as our standards of approval may be more stringent.
R4-9-109 NAME OF LICENSEE OR APPLICANT
A licensee shall do business under the name on the license issued and ensure that the same name is used on the license bond.
If a corporation is doing business in the name of a division or using a trade name, the corporation shall ensure that all names are shown on any application.
If applying for a license or a name change, a corporation shall submit written evidence that it is in good standing or that the new name has been filed with the Arizona Corporation Commission.
The Registrar shall grant a request for name change if there is no change in the legal entity, the name is available, and the request is submitted in writing, together with the required license fee and a cash deposit or bond rider that reflects the name change.
The Registrar may elect to reject an application, refuse to issue a license, or deny the name change of an existing license, based on a review of whether the proposed name is identical or so similar to that of an existing licensee or license applicant that it may cause confusion.
The Registrar shall not accept an application or issue a license if it contains the name of a building trade or craft for which the contractor is not qualified.
